The Death Café is inspired by the centuries-old European salon (or café), an informal gathering to discuss philosophical, political or scientific ideas. In 2011, British entrepreneur Jon Underwood brought this concept to discussions of the most universal topic of all: death. Underwood’s intention was to provide an opportunity to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” Today, there are over 4,400 Death Cafes in 26 countries around the world.

This fall, Green-Wood is thrilled to unveil a site-specific installation in the Cemetery’s Catacombs by acclaimed artist Janine Antoni.

For nearly three decades, Antoni has used the body, most often her own, as a tool and a subject for her artwork. In I am fertile ground, she expands on this theme by using the language of religious icons to pay homage to what she has discovered through her improvisational dance practice. The instinctual ways that the body moves allow it to communicate and express itself, as well as serve as a vehicle for spiritual experiences. Idiosyncratic gestures are contextualized by those that are more recognizable, like hands clasped in prayer. Each work enshrines a gesture, rendering it as both exalted and fragile.

There’s a common misconception that cremation is “greener” than full casket burial because the plot for an urn requires less cemetery space. But nothing is as kind to the planet as a formaldehyde-free burial, whether it involves a shrouded body on a burial board or a body inside a biodegradable casket without any metal hardware or nails. Join Green-Wood’s death educator and eco-friendly funeral director Amy Cunningham in a discussion about greener funeral options, as well as modern modes of accelerating the body’s return to the soil. You can become a tree, after all!

Rule number one: never wing it. Choosing the right words to memorialize the departed always seems to involve some risk – when do you tailor the truth, and when might someone find healing in the mentioning of alcoholism or abuse? From Mark Antony honoring Julius Caesar to Cher toasting Sonny Bono, there’s much to learn from historic and famous eulogies. Through readings and recordings, Green-Wood death educator Amy Cunningham will lead the discussion of how radical honesty influences eulogies today. You’ll learn how to focus on content and presentation, and a better appreciation of the eulogy as a literary form. Bring your memories and a notebook!

Green-Wood Cemetery, 500 25th Street

+ Google Map

This fall, Green-Wood is thrilled to unveil a site-specific installation in the Cemetery’s Catacombs by acclaimed artist Janine Antoni.

For nearly three decades, Antoni has used the body, most often her own, as a tool and a subject for her artwork. In I am fertile ground, she expands on this theme by using the language of religious icons to pay homage to what she has discovered through her improvisational dance practice. The instinctual ways that the body moves allow it to communicate and express itself, as well as serve as a vehicle for spiritual experiences. Idiosyncratic gestures are contextualized by those that are more recognizable, like hands clasped in prayer. Each work enshrines a gesture, rendering it as both exalted and fragile.

The Death Café is inspired by the centuries-old European salon (or café), an informal gathering to discuss philosophical, political or scientific ideas. In 2011, British entrepreneur Jon Underwood brought this concept to discussions of the most universal topic of all: death. Underwood’s intention was to provide an opportunity to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” Today, there are over 4,400 Death Cafes in 26 countries around the world.
